All the leaves were washed off the horse chestnut tree at the end of my drive. We had lashing rain, hail stones, and then rain mixed with snow! It cleared and the sun came out!

They're still there, Lynne! It's the local council's job to do it that's why we pay what we call 'rates' which is a kind of tax - it covers things like road-sweeping and street-cleaning, refuse collection, street lighting and road repairs. They came and cleaned up all the conkers that dropped from the tree - I was mad cos I went out with my camera to take a picture of them, and the council were just finishing clearing them up! The first time they've ever done that, but I think it was because horse chestnuts in my area seem to have a disease so they're trying to keep it to a minimum by clearing up the fruits. Not sure why they haven't cleared these leaves away yet though.

I bet you didn't look forward to the clean up of the leaves.

Very true, Florrie!

That's English weather for you. A bit of everything, from the extreme to the sublime within a short space of time. Still scary, though. Glad it went well for you.

Looks like a pretty area Nicky. Bet the tree was pretty with the Fall Color.

No, Susie, no damage, thankfully. The trees looked a bit forlorn afterwards though! Thanks for dropping by.

Fast moving storm then, no damage hopefully.
